According to an article by @emmiemartin, 90% of Americans don’t cook – and it’s costing them thousands each year:
Here are some tips for capturing a share of that dining out cash in your restaurant:
Improve your digital presence
Both on social media and your website. Are you using Instagram? Take pictures of your food and post it on Instagram routinely, use hashtags to describe and elaborate on your food, connect your Instagram account to the restaurants Facebook page and Twitter, one post on Instagram and you’ve also posted on Facebook and Twitter. Do this routinely, even think about taking photos of your food on a day off, lots of items and have them in your photos to post on off days, be consistent.

Re-think your menu items
Let’s look at your menu, do you have items that are not selling? Maybe Mom’s stuffed cabbage is just not selling? Make it at home and let’s get it off the menu, Mom will understand. Keep the items that sell the best and make them GREAT! Add new items one at a time and test them first as specials.
Offer Online Ordering
One of the fastest ways to increase revenue is to offer customers another way to order from your restaurant. Let customers place their order online, select all of the items and have that order print right to your kitchen printer – no need to have someone on the phone making mistakes! REVONU POS users receive online ordering as part of their suite of POS features.
Manage staff more effectively
With Revonu your staff can login and log out on the system, helping you manage their time. Need a night off? Login to your Revonu back-office from home and see who is working the night shift and how sales are going from your couch!
